If you are purchasing a new gray box for you hot water heater, spend a bit more moeny and get one of the commercial models that has all metal parts. We have had two with the plastic parts that have failed (over 10 years each of service). The outside on/off switch is also convenient. We are running the box for two sessions of 1.5 hours each on a 50 gal. water tank for a household of 2. Sometimes we increase heating during the winter, but for most of the year it's fine. Has always saved us heaps of $ as we are not benficiaries of the hydropower that supplies much of Seattle and the NW corner, even tho the dams that create the electricity are in Skagit County - go figure. Gray boxes are definitely worth the price, installation and figuring them out.

If the little gray box has no trippers, the dial does not rotate,and the lever is on, is electricity being conducted to my water heater?


Maybe yes.
Open TP valve on water heater and see if heater has hot water.

If you want to test, then test across wires on terminals 2 and 4 for 240Volt. Test across terminals 1 and 3 for 240Volt.

To fix timer, buy new WG1573 240Volt clock motor.

I just moved in to a new house and the water heater is hooked to an intermatic T 171 timer. I have set the trippers in different positions and the time of day is correct, but I still cant get hot water...


Open following link for Intermatic troubleshoot checklist.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-Intermatic-timer.html

Once timer checks out, you need to check circuit going to water heater.
Water heater might be the problem.
Remove trippers from timer dial and set override lever to ON.

How to wire T-101 120Volt timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

How Intermatic dial timer clock works.
Clock motor rotates dial.
Intermatic clock motor, located on back of mechanism, are replaceable
Trippers located on outer edge of dial push on-off lever
ON tripper pushes lever one direction
OFF tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
Lever pushes electrical contacts together and pulls contacts apart.
When lever moves, manual override also clicks back and forth with audible click.
To replace timer, replacement snaps into box without needing to changing box.

The timer is used on an Electric Point of Use 2.5 water heater. Currently I get hot water only about two hours in the evening. Before it was --on demand. I opened the timer box and one of the timer box"...


No overcharges here Ms bernarda

If I understand correctly you have Intermatic timer with a yellow dial
You have the Intermatic timer hooked to a small 2-1/2 gallon point-of-use water heater
Your point-of-use water heater is working fine
The timer turns on the water heater once a day instead of twice a day

And it seems like one of the tripper pins has fallen off the yellow dial
The tripper pin is missing and you can't find it or put it back.
You can turn off the electricity and poke around the bottom of the timer box and see if tripper pin can be pulled out using tweezers
Do you know Grainger sells Intermatic tripper pins for $1.67 plus shipping?
